2 inch scale part-built Fowler A7 - stock code 3955

A well-advanced Fowler A7 in 2 inch scale, to the MJ Engineering design and using their castings. From a builder I've bought from before, the work to date is excellent throughout. The silver-soldered copper boiler is by Western Steam, complete with all documentation. In addition to the work already assembled, there is an unmachined cylinder casting, a very neatly made ashpan and brass material for the tender.

Complete with a set of drawings and builder's manual. I estimate the engine at about 50% complete in terms of hours, around 85% complete in terms of expenditure.

Parts and castings are available from the estimable M.J.Engineering.

Finished length 34 inches

scale 2 inch
